575 Chajul-0212Chajul

Bright and unique huipil from Chajul in lovely pastel colors! This lovely huipil measures 28″ across the shoulders, and 21 1/2″ – 25″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). One side is longer than the other. The neck opening is round and measures 5 1/2″ in diameter (very snug fit over adult head). The sides have been sewn to create armholes.

This soft, classic huipil in a unique color pattern is lovely with traditional geomorphic animal figures woven on a soft white woven background. The color is gold and light green with purple accents. The design is classic for the town of Chajul with figures on the bodice on both sides. The shoulders  and sleeves are accented with squares of colors. The threads in the designs are mostly cotton. The background fabric is medium weight, soft woven cotton.

This huipil is in very good used condition, with a few signs of wear, perhaps a few loose threads. There are a few tiny spots on the lower white section, as to be expected for a vintage textile. A spectacular piece of art in a very unique color that can either be worn or displayed!
